Profiling of lantadenes content in the leaves of Lantana camara was carried out from 10 districts of Himachal Pradesh. The data revealed highest concentration of lantadenes in district Mandi (71.72%) and lowest in Bilaspur (33.41%). The incidence of lantana toxicity cases in large (cattle, buffaloes) and small (sheep, goats) ruminants over a period from 2009 to 2013 was found to be highest in district Kangra (0.29%). Among these, the incidence of L. camara toxicity in cattle was maximum (0.49%) and that the female of the species were more commonly affected by its toxicity. Immediate reporting of such cases by the farmers to the Veterinary Hospitals would further help in recording more accurate figures to strategize corrective and/or control measures.
